Welcome to the SOS forums :)

The best place to get feedback on the production is in the production forum. I'll move the topic there and leave a locked copy in the songwriting forum.

Hi Stevie, and welcome to the SOS Forums! 8-)

Just had a listen to your track 'Anxious' and it seems well balanced, with deep bass, crisp highs and plenty of space between the instruments so you can clearly hear everything. From a mixing point of view I think you've done very well.

At first I found the main bell-like motif annoyingly repetitive, but it soon became strangely hypnotic, and I missed it when it dropped rather suddenly at 2:05 ;)

If I had to express an opinion I'd say the tracks exhibits a rather 'brittle' metallic sound, although this balances out rather once that deep bass comes in. I'd still be tempted to tone down the top end though, although with a title like 'Anxious' you perhaps intended this harshness.

Love the sound of that tearing sync-synth that arrives at 2:52, but once again it drops out suddenly at 3:21, and then the track itself finishes rather abruptly a few seconds later. You seem to make a habit of long periods of repetition followed by sudden changes.

I'd have bottled out, toned down the top end, and then added more little incidental percussive details to shine through and break up that at times robotic monotony. However, if a robotic feel was your intention then you succeeded admirably, for me anyway - I still enjoyed the track a great deal.

Overall I really enjoyed this track, as it contains lots of unusual sounds that really tickle the ears, and I ended up listening to it three or four times.

Well done that man!
